Longtime Walker County Sole Commissioner Bebe Heiskell made the front page of the nation's largest newspaper today.

A stipple portrait of Heiskell is on the front page of the Wall Street Journal along with a story about how write-in candidate Ales Campbell wants to replace the sole commissioner form of government with a five-person commission.

"In Georgia, Contender Seeks To Cut Job She's Trying to Win," the headline reads.

Georgia is the only state with the sole commissioner form of government, and Walker County is among only nine of the state's 159 counties still governed by a sole commissioner, the article states.
